Things to Be Thankful For

On the eve of Thanksgiving, or if you prefer, turducken day, Michael Kelly offers a few things for which he and indeed all of us should be thankful. It’s worth a quote:

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful that . . . all the other deep and subtle and clever people of the Clinton White House, and all the thoughts they thought, and all the damage they wrought, are history.

I am thankful that we live in reality again. Or, to be more precise, I am thankful that we live in a reality defined by the actual consequences of policies, rather than what columnists and correspondents and editors can be gulled into thinking are consequences -- gulled at least for long enough to skate through that day’s news cycle and this season’s electoral cycle.

He also takes aim at those who suggest that Bush’s foreign policy successes are merely accidents of history, rather than corrections of accidents. Worth a read.
